the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h

south and east, that we could have created an environment where we could leave and have them capable of carrying out their continued counterinsurgency missions. the fact is, al qaeda is on the rise throughout the middle east. the fact is that they believe that we are weak. they believe we are withdrawing. i talk to these leaders all over the middle east. and this is part of that scenario. look at what's happened in iraq. over 4,000 young americans, and we now have al qaeda on the comeback. anyway, go ahead, willie. >> history is what it is, senator. i think a lot of us wish we weren't in afghanistan anymore, that we hadn't lost 2,000 lives. >> but there was a way out. it's not as if it was an impossible situation. almost all of us agree there was a way that we could have succ d succeeded. >> fair enough, but we are where we are. so what would you do today? why would another year, five years, ten years change afghanistan? >> i would make a decision as to whether we had a significant number of troops listening to my military leadership to remain there to carry out an environment where
that support such a move? >> think the baseline for us is essentially more of the same, but in an environment in which earnings are still pretty good and interest rates are still very, very low. i think the baseline forecast does support higher equity prices from here. i do think it's quite bimobile. i think that the alternative scenario to the baseline is one that's significantly worse because we do get a much bigger hit from the fiscal side, but on the baseline, it's supportive. >> i'm really quite confused here and the economy created 114,000 jobs and there's so much noise about the various aspects of the survey. and i'm not sure. 114,000 jobs create side bad, isn't it? that's very, very disappointing. >> it's lackluster, i would say. >> don't we have to -- typically say we have to generate 200,000 to deal what's happening with the population. isn't that usually where we are? why are we not there today? >> to keep the unemployment rate stable you need about $100 and the participation doesn't change. anything over 100,000 will push it over time. under 14 it would be extremely slowly so that
let's go ahead and release that earlier. it will have a negligible effect on the environment and hopefully the supply situation. also refineries here, some going back on-line, helping -- they're getting repaired. so we should see relief sometime soon. most experts say we'll see that relief coming slow, that we haven't reached the peak as of yet. but over the next couple of weeks, perhaps by thanksgiving, we could see prices on the decline. but for now, looks like we might be dealing with pry high prices here. >> steve: how many refineries are off line right now, causing the spike? >> there are a number of big ones. one in northern california where there was a fire last -- we only have 14 refineries here in california. so if you have just a couple, like five of them off line, then we could see certainly a spike here in the gas. the real big issue is that regulation, the california regulation that wouldn't allow any of these oil companies to release that winter blend. so now that they can release the winter blend, we could see relief. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that upda
